Huffington Post: Time for Eric Holder to go
washington times ^ | 5/23 | spiering

Posted on 05/24/2013 10:26:04 AM PDT by RummyChick

“We have a message for Attorney General Holder over at http://huffingtonpost.com,” read a message from the Huffington Post political Twitter account earlier this evening.

The website's home page is one big splash calling for Eric Holder’s exit from the Obama administration, suggesting that the news reported earlier by NBC News was the final straw for liberals who are critical of Obama’s attorney general.

NBC News’ Michael Isikoff reported that Holder signed off on the search warrant that identified Fox News reporter James Rosen as a “possible co-conspirator”authorizing seizure of his private emails.

The Huffington Post page also highlights Holder’s record on banks, marijuana, mortgage settlements, drones and the prosecution of Aaron Swartz.

In defense of Eric Holder, he’s merely following his superior’s orders.

Reports that moving vans are at Deval Patrick’s private mountain-top, $11M palace, and at his office in Boston.

There was an astute poster here that said right away as soon as the LT Gov resigned he knew Holder was about to go and Patrick was going to be put in his place.

They will sacrifice anyone to save Obama.

Obama too arrogant to follow that advice.

And he can probably get away with it.

Would it make a difference it he had pictures taken with tony the weiner? The huffpost better watch out or the irs may be making a visit. Kind of like the gestapo of years gone by.

Isn’t there anyone in the DoJ who’s already scheduled to retire in the next couple weeks, whom they can ask to resign instead?

They haven’t woken up at all. They’re finally figuring out that once the shoe drops, we will be holding THEM AND the LEFTIST media responsible for putting this bunch of Marxists in power.

This is a total CYA move.

You know, if the HuffPo, which lives in Obozo’s pants, is calling for Holder’s resignation, it doesn’t mean anything good for America.

I think Holder was due to leave his position quite soon anyway, so now he can just do it a little earlier. Same with Lois Lerner. Let them both disappear with their pensions intact, and claim that this satisfies the demands for accountability. All done!

Isn’t making Holder go just away to let him and the administration, get off the hook? Shouldn’t he be made to answer for all his actions?

Holder was talking about quitting before the last election. Holder’s job has always been to protect Obama politically. Holder is probably just bargaining with the Democrat party over how big his payoff will be.

They are calling for Holder to go, just in case the ongoing investigation uncovers the inevitable link to Hussein. ‘Can’t have Barry’s legacy impacted.

Since it has just come out that Holder signed the search warrant against Rosen, I think Hussein will dump Holder, saying he is against doing this to reporters, so Holder has to go. That puts Hussein back in the good graces of the liberal media. He can get anyone to put in Holder’s place but he can’t afford to lose the liberal media.

What I’d like to hear is for HuffPo to demand Holder be prosecuted. When that happens I’ll get happy. Right now, HuffPo is just worried damage to the Communist brand.

Holder will go, it’s only a matter of time. What is more important to getting the truth out into the light of day.

Holder needs to see justice in a court of law and pay the consequences for his actions.

Exactly. "Everything about socialism is sham and affectation." - 23.11; Ch23 Evil; Economic Harmonies; Bastiat

Time for Eric Holder to go to prison, along with Obama.

They gotta at least appear to be cleaning up their act so as not to offend the 47% come the 2014 elections. “See, we found out about these bad people and we took care of it.”

GO??? yeah, go to jail. This entire administration needs to be jailed. The establishment republicans have voiced their concern about how disruptive and destructive impeaching this president would be to this country. Thus, they too are obviously willing to let him continue his destruction of fundamental change.

Similar culture of corruption...,If not stopped we end up like O's home state, or Mexico

Illinois long legacy public corruption.

Illinois’ official slogan is the “Land of Lincoln,” but an equally apt descriptor would be the “Land of Greased Palms.”

The state, Cook County and its governmental seat, Chicago, have a long history of corruption by elected and appointed officials

… Its persistence was documented in Sept. 7, 2006 by the Chicago Sun-Times, which reported that at least 79 current or former Illinois, Chicago or Cook County elected officials had been found guilty of a crime by judges, juries or their own pleas since 1972. The paper provided this tally of the tarnished: three governors, two other state officials, 15 state legislators, two congressmen, one mayor, three other city officials, 27 aldermen, 19 Cook County judges and seven other Cook County officials.

The article noted that so many aldermen had been jailed that the newspaper ran a front-page-story in 1991 when the year passed with none being indicted or convicted.

Do you mean that that nasty fool would be Richard Holder’s replacement?

Doesn’t a replacement have to be okayed by the Senate or Congress, or does the replacement just ooze in on his own slime?

If Holder perjured himself while serving as The Attorney General of The United States, then, no, he doesn’t get to just go. That would make a mockery of our entire legal system. The chief attorney of our country get away with lying? Nope. If he perjured himself, then he goes to jail. Anything else turns the whole country over to the law of the jungle, and the Democrats don’t survive that.
